"Frappe - Iced Coffee is one of the popular Greek drinks, especially in the warmer months. In the last 10 years as coffee shops around the world have become big business and are now doing iced coffee drinks, Greece was making Iced Coffees for years before. Frappe is a very popular drink among young Greeks, probably because of the price, who would all meet up at a local cafeneion for a couple of hours, slowly sipping their Frappes."

I made this right before attending a board meeting, and I was bouncing off the walls. But boy, was it worth it! I absolutely love the thick, delicious, coffee foam. I started out with the ice filled glass, poured the milk in first, then the coffee/foam and mixed very lightly with a chopstick. So the drink looked beautifully layered and was a joy to drink! It's a bitterly cold day today and I loved the drink. Can't wait to try it on a hot summer day! Thanks for posting - it's a keeper!
